    Why World Languages?

    Students that want to be competitive in a global workforce will need to possess a new set of skills. Understanding international perspectives, developing regional expertise and cross-cultural competence as well as advanced language proficiency are no longer skills reserved only for those who plan for a career overseas - they are skills that will enhance any career choice in Forsyth County, Georgia and the United States. World Languages support the nurturing of successful students that are comfortable in working in diverse international teams that can interact effectively with people from different cultures and communicate in at least two languages.
